An Overview of why I’m writing
I’ve been using a lot of Adobe CS Applications for the past months and I almost forgot what Microsoft Word looks like. It is ironic coz I used to write a lot. However, given the time and work that I have now; writing seems to be so hard to catch.
I am writing now not because I feel like it… I am writing coz I miss it. And I do it now, because my immediate supervisor and Mr Spokesman (my big boss) are both on leave today. So I am, despite the fact that I don’t have a particular topic in mind…. Until I remember.
At work, you always get to meet your antagonist
Always. All the time. Even if you are playing too careful in whatever you do, there is always someone who will be against you and be too careless to include you in their carelessness.
I now work for WHO Western Pacific Regional Office, in the Public Information Office unit where I get to meet someone who makes my life less easy. She mocks and stomps all the time. She wants to put me to shame. And I think I know why.
She used to be the owner of the cubicle I am in now; the cubicle next to our immediate supervisor. Some of her stuff are still here messing my table. So, often times, she comes here with her stomping feet pretending she’s looking for something she cannot find, basically because I am here. What’s worse is that she gets to transfer to 3 different cubicles which to her imply that there’s no room for her. Sometime during my first month, I’ll get phone calls which are actually for her since it took a week to transfer and change our locals. Everytime I will give her the phone because I do not know her local number yet, she would say to the other line “I’ll call you back because I’m not in my post”. So, that’s it. She owns this post I am in now. And that I think puts her to shame, so she’s trying to pay back.
Why am I ever hired anyway? It is actually because she cannot do her job so the unit needed to look for someone else to do it for her. So this is supposed to be hers. The graphic designs, the layouts, the update of the website are all hers. But I am here because she can’t which I think for her is also shameful.
Who can be against you?
All the time she tries to shame me, bus she fails. I smile at her and she couldn’t look at me in the eye. I say hello, I say good morning and goodbye. I say sorry if I did something she thinks is wrong. I say thank you in every simple reasons. And I wouldn’t stop. God is with me, who can be against me? I am told to humble myself, and I will. He is my real boss anyway. I know in time, you will stop because I won’t. I will pursue until you can no longer take it and celebrate with me.
